Dani’s passion for writing started at a very young age. It all started with a multitude of diaries, then as her passion grew she turned to poetry and short stories. She received her Bachelor’s Degree at USC in Theatre with an unofficial minor in writing. While at USC she wrote her first screenplay and post-graduation was fortunate to be hired to write another screenplay. As family life got busy her passion was pushed aside, but as she fell back into the love of reading her desire to write again increased, so she returned to it in the summer of 2013. She is currently working on a YA Urban Fantasy Romance series, The Life of Arie, with book 1 already published, and a Romance Novel to be released on March 17, 2014.

There was a time in my life when the light within me shined so brightly. At some point I lost it. I lost me. Life used to course through my veins like an out of control wildfire, unstoppable and infectious. Time was supposed to heal, but all it did was slowly strip me down to an empty vessel void of passion, desire, and drive. I wanted to scream, “Be the one to save me,” but my soul was drained, my heart was shattered, and time had siphoned the life out of me.
When I had the chance to review this book I totally jumped at the chance due to the title and the book being about Firefighters. My great-grandfather had died in the line of duty he had his last call. He was a Captain of the Fire Dept. My Grandfather "Grampy Gus" was a retired Captain as well of the Fire Dept. Although I wasn't around when he was on the Fire Dept it always had a special place. All Firefighters do. The Sacrifices they make are priceless and much appreciated. I thank all the men and women who are Firefighters. With that being said here is my review. Lennox a mom of two and a Firefighter's wife. Even though she was alone a lot it was a common thing for the wives and they joked they were "single moms". Lennox misses her husband Dean. He isn't around much due to his schedule. Something had been lost over time and didn't know if it was possible or not. Does she or doesn't she find all that is lost between her and Dean? Does the family become whole again?
I can relate to Lennox my first husband was a truck driver and he was gone a lot and the depression sunk in just like it did for Lennox. I also had two small children and all I wanted to do was sleep or just do what ever. I didn't care if the house was a mess or not. Depression is a very serious thing. There is help out there and no one is alone. It is amazing how I can relate to Lennox. Especially when you sit and think back to when you met your spouse and then you sit and wonder where everything went that you once shared.
I really enjoyed this story and thought Dani did a wonderful job writing it. Make sure you have your tissues handy. Very emotional book.
